    An 'anti-colonial agitator, social reformer, religious thinker and prophet', Gandhi is remembered for the distinctive form of protest that he brought to India, but biographers often play down his achievements as a lawyer before his return to the country in 1915. Guha's thorough examination of the first 45 years of Gandhi's life demonstrates that his ideas, and the techniques which would undermine the British Empire, were already shaped during the two decades he spent in Natal and the Transvaal.
